Cardinals and Twins swap John Gant for JA Happ – .


In a trade of two struggling pitchers, the Cardinals and Twins traded the right-hander John Gant for left-handed JA Happ, according to the announcements of the two clubs. Minnesota also reclaim minor league left-hander Evan Sisk in the case.
Glove, unlike Happ, is controllable for another year beyond the current campaign. Gant, 28, has long worked as a swingman in St. Louis, throwing a 3.72 ERA in 339 innings since his 2016 debut with the Braves. He’s sporting a solid 3.42 ERA this season, but that’s a deceptive mark; Gant has delivered 56 walks in 76 1/3 innings this year, to go along with 56 identical punchouts. This lack of leadership makes him an infallible candidate for regression if he fails to right the ship.
